The computer, when starting up, does not even get to the point of sending a signal to the monitor before beginning its beeping, which begins within about a second of startup. This means that I am unable to get into the BIOS and find out the manufacturer in order to identify the meaning of the code. Unfortunately, removing the new RAM Card has not changed the situation whatsoever.
If it were the hard drive that was the problem, then I am possibly in a quandary.. My computer came with a recovery partition on the hard drive rather than a set of recovery CDs, which, according to HP, have never been available anyway. So, if the hard drive is indeed the problem, how would I go about installing XP onto a new blank hard drive without paying for a new copy?
